From the dire days of the Great Depression through the trying times of World War II, an American family living in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains struggles to remain together in the wholesome saga The Waltons, based on the life of series creator Earl Hamner Jr. (Falcon Crest).

In season one, John-Boy saves his father's life, a wandering minstrel almost corrupts young Mary Ellen, beloved mother Olivia copes with polio and the strong Walton family endures a variety of other trials. Among the guest stars in the first season of this acclaimed drama series are Ned Beatty, Sissy Spacek, Denver Pyle, John Ritter and Gregory Sierra.
